Update

I have dedicated a pair of notebooks for the cause. I'm still learning many things. Need to start filling up those notebooks and posting what I learn to this blog.

What is this blog all about?

This blog will be the main interface to the Human Body Simulation Project. All software development, modeling, and simulation results will be presented here. Anyone is free to comment on our progress as we strive to fully characterize the human body for future researchers to use. Such an ambitious project,we believe, is best done in the spirit of the free software movement. Volunteers will learn how to create models, and our computing cluster will run batch jobs to generate results for our community to utilize.

The project is still in its infancy, but for starters we are using the Whole Cell (http://www.wholecell.org/) as our foundation. The goal of this project is to provide the simplest possible interface to quickly get biology work done in silico for anyone who is interested. The software will be tested for errors and ported to C++ to enhance its portability to as many platforms as possible. We have a heterogeneous cluster with various operating systems and hardware platforms which will be used to test portability.

We hope you are excited to help us with this project. Its very ambitious but with the global community's help we can make amazing things happen!
